When I updated this app it completely ruined the voice search capabilities of my Nexus Player. I can even go into my activity settings within my Google account and listen to the recordings before and after this app was updated. The audio that is received after this update is choppy and sped up. Example: I wanted to watch Jimmy Fallon Hashtags on youtube. Before the updated it worked perfectly, after the updated it searched "Minion Hats?"
Today I got nothing on my Google Beta. Just telling me: "A New version is available. " When I tried to upodate, the update failed. Still the same. No info on wetaher, stocks and news.... . So I follow the instruction on Goolge website. I have enough space in SD cvard and memory. I set the Flight mode on and OFF. I can now download the update bhowever the resulting update is: " A new version is avalble" No weathner info, no news and No stock update. I am usiung Andorid 6 on Samsung Note 4. I have reboot my phone, I have stop Google app several times but all these effrots are useless. Please return my Google. Please also stop naming your apps and devices randomly and confusingly.... You name this Apop as Goolge, sometimes Google Now. But no Google Now is App store. It is starnge to name yopur app store as Google Play. Then you name Google Home for your Speaker and its app (which is also for Crhomecast and Google TV Box).
Can't even do basic stuff like reminders. Google... Why are all the wear/tv/auto and phone apps running different versions of google? Some commands only work on some stuff and not on others.. SORT IT OUT! Infuriating!
Nexus Player review: Voice search does not work at all on the Nexus Player on my device. It has not since 5.0. It is a convenient functionality, and sorely missed, especially on the TV. I have tried various fixes.
As of right now I have this one.... The app is needed to get the full Android TV experience but really needs to be improved... I have had issues with it freezing everyday just trying to search.... For a fact there is not one time I have pressed search and it don't take at least a min to 2 mins just to say its not responding 1st then allow me to search.... I love google and all its product... I use wallet...android pay... I use only nexus phones .. Have a a nexus 6 and 5x ... I even have project fi service... I love google... but this one app.... You guys really have to fix....
Well what shell I tell you about this app, on my nvidia shield, the voice command part off this app does play up quite a lot and doesn't work properly at all, as all it says didn't catch that ,and also says can't reach Google at the moment, as anyone else been experiencing this...? But when I use a Bluetooth keyboard that I've connected to my nvidia shield that part off this app works fine and OK. So Google I do think that this app needs improving so its able to work the voice command part off this app. So Google could you please fix this, as its not much to ask is it.
